Editorial Reviews

Grammy-winners Huey Lewis and The News' Soulsville is their first album in nine years. Recorded at historic Ardent Studios in Memphis, the album features 14 classic songs from the vault of Stax Records, including ''Respect Yourself'' and ''Got To Get You Off My Mind.'' Considered to be the preeminent soul music label in America, Stax produced an astounding number of hit records throughout the 1960's & 70's. Ably paying tribute to the rich Stax legacy, Huey Lewis & The News, joined by their long time horn section, capture the energy and excitement of this important era.

Soulsville re-unites Huey Lewis & The News with co-producer Jim Gaines (''Sports'',''Fore!'') who worked at the Stax studios (home to artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T & The MG's, and Isaac Hayes) as a young man and was involved in many of the label's original recordings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still entertained by HLN after all these years November 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
When I first read the Huey Lewis and the News had a new CD coming out, I was excited, then somewhat disappointed that it was an album of covers. I liked, but didn't love, "Four Chords and Several Years Ago," and semi-expected this to be more of the same. But it's not. And I'm not exactly sure why it's not. Where "Four Chords" seemed like a move in a different direction for the band, (a direction I didn't think really worked) "Soulsville" fits them like a glove.

I'll refrain from comparing the catalogs from which the tunes on "Four Chords" and "Soulsville" were chosen, and just say that the songs on this new CD are right in Huey and the band's wheelhouse. There's the same ease and sincerity in these tracks as there are on all the band's songs to which I've been drawn over the years.

The band seems more at home recording these songs than anything they've released in a long time, including "Plan B," which was fun, but seemed a step or two below what I'd been hoping for.

Anyway, I sampled the tracks before buying, but enjoyed them much more in their entirety than in the snippets provided by Amazon. Right off the bat, "Don't Fight It" and "Got to Get You Off My Mind" could, in a perfect world, find their way onto the radio, as they seem to me to have the same multigenerational appeal as many of the band's early hits. But I'd never hold my breath waiting for the radio industry to make any effort to give this album any airplay. To expect that would be to give the industry too much credit.

Rather, I'll just spread the word, rave about the album to my friends, let my facebook followers hear about how enjoyable it is, and just be happy that, just as they did when I was 20, Huey Lewis and the News are still entertaining me in my mid-40s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definite reminder of the past November 3, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
The album sounds good. If you are expecting Fore! and Sports its not... Think Four Chords & Several Years Ago and you will be on mark. With that being said the band sounds as good as ever! I hope to see Huey Lewis and The News for many years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in Time November 2, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
True to their word, Amazon.com made this download available right at midnight. I sat at the old P/C refreshing the page from time to time until midnight finally arrived. Just like a song from the movie "Back to the Future", this CD/Download will take you "Back in Time". You may remember songs like "Respect Yourself" originally done by the Staple Singers. Or how about "Never Found a Girl" done by Eddie Floyd? Anyone remember "Never Like This Before" by William Bell? Then of course there is the Grand Slam - the opening song - "Don't Fight It" originally done by 'Wicked' Wilson Pickett.

Yes, Huey Lewis And The News are still around, hopefully for a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars HLN continues to evolve musically through the years. November 9, 2010
By Mary
Format:Audio CD
Huey Lewis continues to get better thru the decades and this album is proof. Two factions will love this album; the one, like me, that has followed them since the beginning and truly understands their music, and soul music lovers. HLN may be the most misunderstood band in history. They have been typecast as makers of melodic pop hits and corny music videos in the 80's, which I love by the way, but have been overlooked and misjudged as extremely tallented, serious musicians that are always striving to be even better. This album is a masterpiece and quite frankly, this may be the only band that can pull this off. It's early but this could be a sleeper at the Grammys in its genre. Buy it and listen to it with an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic November 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This may be the closest that white musicians will ever get to performing historically accurate and authentic black music. What an amazing album! The only thing better than this album is the original songs itself. Anyone who takes my comments out of context, be aware that they are not intended to segregate black and white music, but I feel that this album is an important step to reintegrating black and white music, culture and people.

5.0 out of 5 stars It won't let you down! November 2, 2010
By kotablu
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Having been a fan of this band from very near the beginning I gotta say they did it again! I was not let down. You can tell this was done with LOVE. The songs fit Huey's voice perfectly. The horn section "nails" it. The song selection is "obscure" enough most people won't recognize these songs, so they will sound new and fresh. If you've "pigeon holed" this band and think only of "Sports" and "Fore" when you think of them then you may be very surprised by what you hear. If you're up for a great musical trip I'd take the ride to "Soulsville" with this band! Open your mind and sit back and enjoy the ride. Awesome album from an amazing sounding band! They know their craft well! I own a huge Stax catalog and Huey Lewis and The News do these songs justice!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Disappointment Here November 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved everything Huey has ever opened his mouth to sing, but this time it's as if Ray Charles jumped into his body for one last hurrah through him. People who say there is no soul in this album don't know soul. Huey does. Highly recommended for anyone who loves Huey, the News and the blues. Don't pick it apart or compare with anything else he has ever done. This album stands on it's own.Just buy it and enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Representation of Soul Legacy November 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Wow, these guys really did the Stax legacy proud with this CD! If you like old-style soul, or if you've never really listened to it, but are a Huey Lewis and the News fan, this is the place to get educated because your ears and your toes are in for a treat. From the funky vibes of "Respect Yourself" and "Grab This Thing" to the all-to-danceable "Never Like This Before" and "Little Sally Walker" to the smooth grooves of "Cry to Me" and "Never Found Girl" (which can make the unmoveable start swaying) to the heartbreaking "Just One More Day" and the title track "Soulsville," the band covers the genre thru the Stax catalog quite thoroughly. Sports may be their legacy, but what they taken and created out of the Stax legacy is nothing short of pure magic. What this CD has in common with their past work is that once again, every song they choose to put in the collection is great, and every song, simply put makes you "feel" - somehow it must rub off from the tunes, but isn't that really what Soul is all about. Buy it.
